How Much Does It Cost To Replace Shocks?
Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care is occasionally asked by our customers in the Newark & Middletown area how much they can expect to pay to replace shocks in their vehicles. Our automotive shock specialists tell them that the cost to replace car shock absorbers can vary on different factors to include the age of the car or truck and whether it is a performance car or a typical passenger car.
Newer Vehicles (2006 - Present)
The shocks on newer model cars are generally more complicated than shocks used just before 2006. Typically we tell our customers that shocks for newer cars can cost on average $325 to $400 for a set of four shocks on a normal passenger sedan.
Older Vehicles (1994 - 2005)
The shocks for older model cars and trucks are designed simpler and usually more readily available. Typically the cost of shocks for older vehicles can run about $40 less than shocks for newer model vehicles.

I will be sure to recommend Benchmark Transmission to anyone I know seeking transmission service in Delaware!
Sherri Meeks-Graham of Wilmington Delaware
"I wanted to follow-up to the reconditioning of my transmission you did in early April of this year at Benchmark Transmission Newark Delaware. it has been a month since I picked up my vehicle post the repair and things are running smoothly. It is a comfort to know that driving my Honda CRV, with the transmission work you have done and the excellent way you've taken care of me and my vehicle,it will continue to ride well for a long time to come. I appreciate your extending the initial warranty another year, since there was a problem with the bearing in the transmission last month. Though there was a problem with the transmission malfunctioning, your customer service has always been excellent! I will be sure to recommend Benchmark Transmission to anyone I know seeking transmission service in Delaware! "
Benchmark Transmission gives me the confidence that as long as I want to keep my vehicles, they will keep them running good condition.
Rod Pelkey of Newark Delaware
"I am the owner of 3 late model Ford Explorers (92, 93, 95) and a 99 Subaru Legacy. I have been dealing with Benchmark, Dante (Owner) for over 8 years. I have not alway taken the best care of my vehicles in terms of preventive maintenance, and checking into the little noises that give you that feeling that something is wrong, therefore I've experienced more problems than necessary. Despite my neglect, whenever I've taken my cars to Benchmark, I have always been treated to the best of service. Benchmark has both replaced and repaired transmissions in my vehicles, and has done wonderful work, and at a reasonable cost. I have never been dissatisfied, Dante is always willing to work with me. I have nearly 300,000 miles on one explorer, 200,000 on anther, and over 150,000 on the Legacy. Benchmark Transmission gives me the confidence that as long as I want to keep my vehicles, they will keep them running good condition. Thanks Benchmark!"
I will be having all of our cars serviced at Benchmark in the future, because I know I can trust them. It truly was a pleasure doing business with them.
Sherry Keefe of Middletown Delaware
"I arrived at Benchmark Transmission sure that I was going to get the same estimate that I had just received at Union Park Honda. I was so wrong!! When Mitch called me with the estimate and it was $3800.00 less, I was in shock. I was about to buy a new car instead of having this one repaired because of the cost. I will be having all of our cars serviced at Benchmark in the future, because I know I can trust them. It truly was a pleasure doing business with them."
We applaud your attention to detail, outstanding customer service, reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity and quality service!
James Schnatterer of Newark Delaware
"Integrity & Honesty is something that can be hard to find these days! Dante and his staff offer just that along with superb and quality service at Benchmark Transmission of Newark, DE. Having a daughter that just turned 16, we were faced not only putting her out on the roads, but finding a car that was safe and reliable for her to drive. Dante and staff were there to help us determine if our 1991 vehicle that needed a transmission was worth fixing and handing down to our daughter. Dante took the time to go over the vehicle to ensure safety and reliability. The transmission service they provided was OUTSTANDING quality and the car drives like new thanks to Benchmark. We can't thank Dante and his staff enough for being patient with us. His honesty in what needed to be done to make this car reliable enough to put our daughter in is something that we truly value. I applaud your attention to detail, outstanding customer service, reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity and quality service! We will continue to highly recommend your shop to anyone needed transmission work. James & Julie"
I decided to get it checked out by an expert at Benchmark Transmission before I did any damage
Wilbur Rivera of Newark Delaware
"Mr. Dante Principe Jr.,Two weeks ago, I took my 98 VW Golf to the Smith VW dealer for a non-transmission related problem. Upon completion of that work, the dealer told me that my 2nd gear on my Automatic Transmission was sticking and that I needed a new transmission. I told them I did not want them to do that type of work on my car. I decided to get it checked out by an expert at Benchmark Transmission before I did any damage.I looked in the Yellow Pages and decided to call your office and get an estimate. You told me that I should bring the car in and allow you check it out at "no charge". You mentioned it could be something simple which would greatly reduce the repair cost. Last week I Brought my car in to your shop in Newark Delaware. You checked the car and found out the programming on the throttle body and the transmission where not responding. I think you relearned these components and you fixed my car. When you called me, you told me that there was no charge for the work you did to my car. As I drove my car home and felt how smoothly the transmission shifted from gear to gear: I immediately started to "thank god" for taking my car to your shop and dealing with you. As I write this note to you, I realized how rare it is to find people like you that are willing to help people in trouble without taking advantage of them and/or expecting anything in return.Sincerely yoursWilber Rivera"
